Commands Mentioned:

  • yum update – updates the YUM package manager
  • yum search php5- – searches for available PHP5 modules in the Fedora repositories
  • yum install php5-MODULE_NAME – installs a specific PHP5 module


In this step-by-step guide, we showed you how to search for available PHP5 modules on Fedora 16 using the YUM package manager. By updating the YUM package manager and using the yum search command, you can easily find out if the PHP5 module you need is already available in the Fedora repositories. If it is, you can use the yum install command to install it. This process can save you time and effort in compiling and installing PHP modules from source.
